This is one of a series of interviews completed by the Milton Historical Society (http://miltonhistoricalsociety.ca) as part of the production of the book "Milton Remembers WWII 1939-1945". Several veterans of Milton and the surrounding community were interviewed by MHS staff to document their experiences in Milton, their service to Canada in WWII and the impact that this had on their life. This is the interview of John McTrach, a RCAF (Royal Canadian Air Force) Observer-Navigator who served with the RAF (Royal Air Force). John's plane was shot down over France in January 1944 but he avoided capture and spent considerable time working with the French Underground. He made his way back to the UK after the D-Day invasion. This interview was conducted by Ken Lamb and Ed Goodall on February 1, 1994.
